In this paper, eight small area traffic management packages or models are selected for appraisal. These models are useful for predicting the impact of traffic control measures before implementation. These measures include street closure, turn bans, priority junctions, one-way street systems, traffic signals and roundabouts. Packages for freeway analysis are not included in this study. The criteria adopted in the appraisal are the level of detail, possible applications and validations, assignment algorithms adopted, computational requirements and documentation.
